  1. There are a lot of different kinds of ants and problems. This method may be useless to many. See the Related Articles; this article is really only for people who have tried other methods and have failed, but don't want to resort to poisoning the ants. May be of no use for really big and nasty ants.

  2. It is very hard to get rid of fire ant. Make a mixture using one teaspoon of canned cat food, two spoon of strawberry and half spoon of borax. After making the mixture make small balls and leave those chunks around the fire ant’s nest. Then the worker ants will carry those chunks to the nest and will eat. They will eat altogether and die.

  3. Yeah, getting rid of fire ant is really very difficult. They are as dangerous as their name is. Boric acid is useful for controlling them.
